    Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Base Coat:

    Love this product to death. I bought this base coat, the top coat and a few of their gel colors. I found when I used the base and top coat with the gel colors in the line, it peeled very easily and only lasted me a day. I wanted to venture out so I used a regular nail polish I had with the base and top coat and it lasts me weeks! Feels and looks like gel that you would get at a salon. I'm a hairstylist and constantly wash hair, so nail polish chips almost right away, but when I use the base and top coat with a regular nail polish, I never have to worry about my manicure!

            I've tried several different base coats, and this is now my favorite. It's a little tacky, but it REALLY holds the polish well!

                I used this and the top coat . It made my nails look professional and lasted several days surprisingly because I had to lift and carry boxes.

                    This base coat works great when used with the Essence gel polish and top coat. Only giving 4 stars because it doesn't really go above and beyond, it just does its job.
